Powderham Food Festival, October 1st and 2nd

The Powderham Food Festival, which takes place at Powderham Castle just outside Exeter, continues to grow bigger every year. Over the first weekend of October, the two-day event features a huge range of the region’s food and drink producers, as well as some of its top chefs.

Powderham Food Festival

Those who visit will be able to see demonstrations on the cookery stage from Richard Hunt, Orlando Murrin, Peter Gorton, Tim Maddams and Jim Fisher of the Exeter Cookery School among others, while The Theatre of Fire & Smoke will give visitors ideas for cooking with fire pits, smokers, barbecues and wood-fired ovens.

The Great Devon Chilli Challenge will see chilli lovers battling it out to become champion, while there’s plenty planned for the children too. As well as entertainment from street performers to bouncy castles, children will have the chance to take part in their own cookery workshops, as well as visiting the food education zone which will introduce them to local produce.

In addition to the food producers selling produce to take home, those who visit the Powderham Food Festival will be able to enjoy plenty of treats on the day, including cream teas, cakes, seafood and more.
